About Squirrel Hill

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – Squirrel Hill was built in 1972. In February of 2004 the Library was closed for a $4.4 million renovation, reopening to the public in 2005. This renovation added an additional 7,000 square feet, creating a comfortable, urban, loft-style library overlooking the business district.

This large neighborhood location offers a variety of areas for reading, studying and working, including four comfy reading nooks built into the Library’s outside wall. Additionally, there are places for our community to gather and connect in spacious meeting rooms or the lovely enclosed garden area.

To meet the information needs of the community, CLP – Squirrel Hill is open seven days a week and provides 30 desktop and 17 laptop computers for adult patrons. The children’s section has nine computers with tables and chairs to accommodate young Library users. Guests can enjoy a variety of programming for all ages, like storytimes, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) programming, Teen Time, Book Discussion Groups and several language programs.

We look forward to your next visit to CLP – Squirrel Hill.

Conveniently located at the corner of Murray & Forbes, this location offers a modern, open space packed with popular reading materials, excellent programs and professional resources for businesses. CLP – Squirell Hill is a central part of the neighborhood’s bustling business district.
